'It looks like a certain cat is out of a certain bag': Stephen Fry, 57, to marry lover 30 years his junior following whirlwind romance and says he's 'very, very happy'

The 57-year-old QI presenter and comedian was first pictured Elliott Spencer in November, but the pair are understood to have become a couple over the summer. They have registered to marry in Dereham, Norfolk, close to where Fry grew up. Friends have credited the young stand-up comic, who is 30 years Fry's junior, with putting a smile back on the actor's face following a crippling battle with depression. He tweeted: 'Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I'm very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance! Thank you all SO much for your kind congratulations.
